Pelvic Adhesions

In February of this year I had a abdominal hysterectomy aged 32. Yesterday I had extensive surgery to removal severe adhesions. My bowel had been dragged to the stomach wall in an s shape and other organs were fused to it. My ovaries were also stuck down. Does anyone else have experience of this an did they return?

I had removal by keyhole surgery.

Thank you

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The pelvic adhesions and scar tissues formed could have been after your hysterectomy probably due to inflammatory reaction. Once they are formed, they can get formed again (if your body has tendency to heal by forming extensive scar tissue). Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further clarification about recurrence and further management options. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
